Southend 1-0 Crewe

Bilel Mohsni gave League Two leaders Southend a narrow victory over Crewe.

The Blues looked threatening early on, with leading scorer Liam Dickinson firing two shots narrowly wide.

Southend took the lead through Mohsni's close-range effort after Crewe goalkeeper Glenn Morris could only parry Ryan Hall's free kick.

Mohsni almost added a second but his shot was blocked by Matt Tootle as the home side maintained their position at the top of the league.


Speaking about the on-field row between Steve Phillips and David Artell, Crewe manager Steve Davis told BBC Radio Stoke:

Davis warns Crewe keeper after row

"I addressed it, told Steve what I thought of it and told him that it must not happen again.

"It's happened too many times. Once is too many, twice is certainly too many.

"Steve has a habit of losing his temper which, for a goalkeeper, is a definite no-no.

"He's got to improve that side of his game and be better equipped to cope with any criticism he gets."
